Use Case 13: Deployment of mobile robots in collaborative work cell for assembly of product variants
The aim is to demonstrate the capabilities of mobile manipulators in work places shared by humans. The robot needs to localize itself accurately using sensor fusion techniques in the indoor working environment during its motions. Next, the mobile manipulator movements are planned, avoiding obstacles, by solving a numeric optimization problem which takes into account a continuously updated digital representation of the environment. A Kuka KMR robot will perform in a collaborative work space, a kitting application of air compressor components.
